Pour une approche sensible de la biodiversité

MANIFESTO

VIVANT is the desire to approach ecology through culture and the senses, through creativity and imagination, which are the foundations of our behaviour, our views and our values.

This cultural season is based on a symbiosis between individuals’ feelings and the global collective commitment, between artistic sensitivities and ecological issues, between the prolific expression of life and the dramatic erosion of biodiversity.

It is based on the belief that artists and creators have the capacity to share an eye-opening experience of ecological issues and that contribute to conscious awareness, the only real driving force for action at the individual and collective level.

The ecological transition provides the opportunity for a new social impetus, which artists and cultural circles, through their transversal and selfless vision, can invigorate.

Today, conservationists are turning to culture to ignite a real movement that combines social transformation,
ecological transition and creative action all over the world.

WHAT CAN A MULTISENSORY AND CREATIVE APPROACH 
BRING TO BIODIVERSITY?

UNDERSTANDING BIODIVERSITY

using fiction to create a narrative that feeds the imagination and render
visible a complex, invisible, or even extinct world.

EXPERIENCING BIODIVERSITY

to change the anthropocentric point of view and to question the manipulation of life in order
to make tangible a concept that seems broad and vague.

COOPERATING TO PROTECT BIODIVERSITY

to develop the diversity of forms of artistic approaches as a resistance to simplification
and as a tool of action for conservationists, to replace
the values ​​of exploitation with those of cooperation.
